Let us introduce ourselves first…
The management of Magic Resorts, Arie Hoogendoorn & Desiree Pullens welcome you to their home. Arie & Desiree opened the first resort of Magic Island in Moalboal, Cebu on January 2, 2005. Over the years, Magic Island became very successful and Arie & Desiree decided to open a second resort. A suitable dive site was carefully sought, land was purchased, construction plans were made and Magic Oceans opened its doors in Anda, Bohol on July 1, 2015.
Concheng is general manager of Magic Island. She is always ready to answer any questions you might have. She is assisted by Mayeth, the receptionist. Breakfast is served at half past seven by our wonderful morning team. However, if youd like to sleep in or relax, they are always willing to prepare you a late breakfast. The same ladies of the morning team will clean the bungalow every day.
The restaurant provides a perfect lunch and dinner which is prepared by Ruth and Jake.
Our diving team, led by our own PADI Course Director Jamie, take care of the dive center. We have been working for many years with the same captains, boatmen and dive masters. Manuel has been working at Magic Island since the beginning and knows almost everything about the underwater life around Moalboal. If there is anything you would like to know do not hesitate to ask him. Then of course we have the evening team. Would you like a delicious cocktail? Choose from the long list of drinks with or without alcohol. Chino, who runs the bar with Chuna, is a master in mixing cocktails! Our driver Toting will pick you up from the airport and make sure youre back in time for your return trip. Behind the scenes, the facility team takes care of the resort maintenance and the beautiful gardens are maintained by Mario, who also looks after the pool. Our team is happy to serve you and to make sure that youre (diving) holiday will be one of a kind!
